NETFLIX’S new series based on the crimes of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer has left viewers all asking the same question -what was in the sandwich?
Did Jeffrey Dahmer give Glenda Cleveland a sandwich?
In one scene, we see Dahmer hand his neighbour Glenda Cleveland a sandwich, which she turns down.
But, as with all dramatisations, not everything we see on screen is exactly as it happened – and according to ladbible, that included the character of Glenda Cleveland, who not only lives next door to Dahmer in the series but is also the one handed the snack.
In reality, Cleveland lived in the building next door, and according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel there was never any confirmation that she had ever met Dahmer.
However, the media outlet instead speculates that Cleveland’s character was combined with that of another neighbour named Pamela Bass.
And Bass Interestingly, was the one who claimed Dahmer made sandwiches for others in the building in real life – meaning there may be some element of truth in the dramatised storyline.
What was in the sandwich?
As viewers watched the scene, they quickly took to social media to speculate the contents of what they believed to be a grisly snack and the all assumed the same thing – that the sandwich was made using human remains.
This hints at the real Dahmer’s confession of eating some of the organs of his dead victims.
Speaking in 2013 documentary The Jeffrey Dahmer Files, Dahmer’s neighbour Bass spoke about her worst fear after being given the sandwich by the man she described as appearing to be friendly and sharing.
In the documentary, she said: “I have probably eaten someone’s body part.”
Was Jeffrey Dahmer a cannibal?
Jeffrey Dahmer confessed to the rape and murder of 17 young men and boys between 1978 and 1991.
He also confessed to eating some of his victims – and therefore being nicknamed “The Milwaukee Cannibal“.
He is thought to have lured his victims to his apartment and drugged them before chopping them up and eating them.
When he was arrested in 1991, at the age of 30, cops discovered a grisly scene when entering his apartment.
They found partly cooked human flesh as well as a human head stored in the fridge.
Dahmer received 16 life sentences for his crimes.
Scarver removed a 20-inch metal bar from the prison weight room and brutally hit Dahmer twice around the head.
Dahmer was declared dead an hour after arriving at the hospital.
